About Us


Thanks for taking the time to check us out. You can learn a lot about us on this website. But, of course, the best way to get to know us is to come on a Sunday morning and see for yourself. You'll find us to be warm, welcoming, and easy to get to know.

Greater Portland Bible Church began in 1977 with a group of about 30 families who longed for a church that combined good Bible teaching with dynamic worship. 40+ years later, those elements are still the heart of our times together. We are learning that the whole Bible tells the story of Jesus, so "good Bible teaching" has come to mean not only explaining what the Bible says, but letting our hearts see Him in every passage. We want to leave every worship gathering more impressed with Jesus and more compelled to follow Him than when we came.

Although we count many churches in the Portland area as our friends, Greater Portland is not affiliated with any denomination or movement.

A Few Introductions

Discover GPBC

If you've started attending GPBC and are interested in knowing more about what makes this faith community tick, or perhaps you are already loving being a part of things and want to become a member, then Discover GPBC is the perfect place to start making either of those things happen. We get to know one another and share about our history, mission, values, church structure, staff, and all that good stuff. The three-hour class that includes lunch comes around several times a year. Check out our events page to see when the next one might be.
